Our first home dream came true thanks to HomeStart!
If it wasn't for Terri Garbutt, HomeStart's qualifier, we would never have thought it was possible to build & own our first home. She looked at our situation, and reassured us that it was indeed possible.
Our consultant, Denes Aldott was everything we could have asked for. Denes understood what we were looking for in our home, offering different layouts/ideas until we found the perfect home (with everything that we wished for), at a fantastic price. Denes' commitment to his job is outstanding. He helped us with the purchasing of the land & ensured that we did not exceed the budget that we had set.
Zoe Cookson, our contracts administrator, made the signing of the contracts & prestart a breeze and answered all of our questions straight away.
Overall, the whole process with HomeStart has been stress free & easy. Thank you to Terri, Denes & Zoe - we couldn't have done it without all of you!
Everything was Excellent
Dealing with my consultant Reece was fantastic he was easy to deal with and very friendly, most importantly his knowledge was exceptional, i would recommend him to all my friends and colleagues. finding the land and negotiating a great price $30,000 less than asking made this all achievable
the communication and quality of everything has been superb
Thanks again homestart
So happy and stress free!
After a long time shopping around and looking into different builders we settled at HomeStart and we couldn’t be happier. The consultant we dealt with at HomeStart was definitely better than some of the others we came across. Farshid was kind, understanding and really listened to what we wanted in our home. It was clear once we found HomeStart we didn’t need to go anywhere else. Amazing service and awesome value for money. Thanks for making our dreams of owning a home, a reality!!!
Made our dream a reality!
HomeStart made our dream of owning a home a reality. The whole process was so smooth and stress free. Our consultant Farshid has been fantastic from the start. He was friendly and very knowledgeable and explained everything to us to help us understand the process. Thanks for being so patient. We couldn’t be happier! Thanks HomeStart
All the management process was excellent and from the beginning our HomeStart representative Uliana was very patient with us explaining everything and ensuring the design was exactly what we wanted.
The staff at the office and on the phone was always approachable and contactable and the carpentry quality in particular is exceptional.
Easy & Stressfree build
My experience from the very start to key handover was smooth and easy. The few people I dealt with where always friendly and knowledgeful and I was kept well informed while the build took place.I changed the design to suit our lifestyle and am over the moon with the end result. Final cost matched up with the estimate and house was finished slightly ahead of schedule. We had no issues at all with our build.
The Ozzy dream...
I had my first appointment with Allan Claxton from HomeStart on the 26th of Sep 2018. Two weeks ago, I settled on my land & house package in Hammond Park and reality still has not hit me. Am I really building a house I want in the area I want to live in???......Yes! I am!!!
I could not have done this without Allan’s product knowledge, hard work, positive can-do attitude, persistence & patience with my ever-changing mind. I must have gone through (and changed) pretty much every house design that HomeStart have before I finally found one I liked. And then I still changed it numerous times. LOL. Allan deserves a medal for finally closing the deal on this house as I had strict cost criteria, high expectations, way too much energy and never really thought it would be possible to get what I want.
He always said, “Stay positive mate! We are gonna make it happen! You just leave it with me.”
Well, he delivered on his promise and Allan has made the impossible dream a reality for my son and I. For this we are grateful. Thank you to Allan & the HomeStart Team (Mason, Brent & Zoe) for making the Ozzy dream come true for my son and I.
The best gift of 2019
My wife and I would like to thank everyone at homestart who made our dream come true of owning a home.
We really want to thank Denes Aldott who made sure that we understood the process for the construction.
Sue Key who is the client liaison officer, she touched base every couple of weeks to keep us updated with the construction process.
We are so happy that in 2019 we'll be owing our very first home.
Thank you all so much
Incredibly helpful and well-informed.
I went to see Homestart 4 months ago as I was thinking about buying a property. I was informed that it would be more than a possibility, and my new home is starting next week! They have provided every service with efficiency, been flexible with meetings and due dates, accommodated every change or nitpick I had and smiled the whole time! The total cost of the build did go up, as expected as I wanted some changes that made things expensive. The broker they referred me to has been great, as were the settlement team (granted they are all owned by BGC). I highly recommend their service as they were honest, timely and didn't overpromise anything.
The best Christmas gift ever
We moved into our first home in Australia just before Christmas, and it was the best Christmas gift for us.
We signed the contract on 19/04/2018 and the key handover was on 12/12/2018.
The sales representative was Uliana Sherbina who is very helpful and responsive. She was always available for us, on the phone, text, email etc. and she gave us the best advices in all stages from design to building contract and construction. She was with us until the end of construction and helped a lot to solve all of our issues and concerns during this time.
Prestart went well with Sarah Fleming and the final cost wasn't too far from what we expected. We tried our best to see everything before signing the contract, Homestart also has reasonable prices for extras (i.e. adding extra GPOs).
Site Supervisor was Damian Gane who we met on site at first inspection for the first time. He is also a great and helpful guy, and by making good to all defects, he made the house lovelier and more enjoyable for us. During construction we were in touch with Sue key who is the Client Liaison Officer, and she answered all of our questions about construction very well. She touched base every couple of weeks to update us with the construction process.
As HomeStart is one of the BGC Builders, the material and products they use in buildings comply with Australian Standard as they are one of the prominent suppliers of bricks or roof tiles in WA.
Finally, we are pleased with Homestart service, and we recommend them to our friends.
Home for Christmas!
Myself and my wife would like to thank everyone at Homestart who made our dream of owning a home - Reality! Thanks to Uliana who made sure we understood the process, our floor plan design and took us to what is now our block! She has always been a call away from start to finish of construction. Prestart was also enjoyable experience, Sarah was so helpful and knowledgeable with product and colours. We are SO SO happy to spend first Christmas in our new home! Thank you all so much!!
Gary From home start has been fantastic he has taken us from the very beginning making sure homestart was right for us to finding us the perfect block of land and the right house plans making sure to help us with any changes. Gary has been outstanding in keeping in touch and making sure that we are happy and confident with everything that is happening every step of the way. Pre start was very easy and a pleasant experience with everyone being very helpful. So far we are at the build stage and we have been kept up to date by Gary, our project manager Sue and our site manager Jamie we genuinely could not be happier with our Homestart experience.
Happy Home With HomeStart
My family and I are really happy and satisfied that we built our home with HomeStart. I don’t have any issues from start to finish of constructions. The whole team are kind and approachable especially our Housing Consultant, Uliana Sherbina. So, if you want to build a home with a high standard and hassle free you have to choose HOMESTART!
First , Mason persevered to convince me I could even give this a go! (patience++) Then I met Uliana who inspired, reassured and assisted me to find the right lot and plan a home for my children and I! (Creative & understanding) and Brent who was my financial shadow advising exactly what I needed to do for the go ahead... for months! (responsive and absolutely on the ball!! ;)... Now my quality home is built with no secret additional costly surprises, I love it and am ready for my life changing move!! Thanks guys, you're amazing!
Excellence in service
t this point I can only comment on the service and support.
I found the salesman extremely knowledgeable and most importantly he listened to my needs & requirements. This meant that I could quickly select the right design and floor plan. His knowledge of the area meant that the perfect block was found and locked in. At every step he was available to answer any followon questions that I had.
The finance team were very knowledgeable and worked with me for the best finance option to suite my circumstances.
Pre start and Contracts team. They really know their business. The process was smooth and clear. A process flow chart is supplied in the pack so you can see several different areas are processing simultaneously. So time is used efficiently. They guided me through the prestart systematically so nothing was missed. Excellent attention to detail.
Top marks for process efficiency, feedback & customer service all the way through.
Extremely happy with everything home start has done for me so far! Great communication and quality products used! Would definitely recommend to anyone. Pre start was very smooth with plenty of options and great advice offered from staff, the process has been very quick and hassle free.
Looking forward to seeing the final result and getting into my first home!
Amazing first home build!
I was really impressed with the workman ship and quality of my new home. Nothing I could really fault at this time. The build was well managed although there was change over if staff in January I was finding it harder from January - March to have regular updates from my client liaison. I would have appreciated a few more updates opposed to having to contact my CL all the time. Customer service and support was amazing couldn’t have asked for anything better! Especially from Emily Read who helped me get things started on this journey and was able to help me build the home I wanted. This journey has been made as least stressful as possible. I can’t thank homestart enough for helping me to move into my own home!
Amazing Experience for First time build
A big thank you to Homestart for helping us get into our very first home. From the very beginning Emily was readily available to answer any questions we had and gave us the much wanted push we needed to start the ball rolling. Everything was explained to us in detail and we didn't feel pressured into anything. Emily helped us to modify the plan and got us everything we wanted in our dream house for the budget we had. Every step of the way Emily was there assisting us and guiding us through the process. We have nothing but high recommendation to go through Home Start. If you have hesitations give Emily a call and she will defiantly help. Thank you for giving us our dream home.
The best first home build ever
I had the best year watching my home get built. I had heard so many bad stories about building and can honestly say I had no issues what-so-ever.
Homestart made it the best experience. Sue Spirkoski explained it all so well and gave me the little nudge I needed to get going (I was nervous). The block I picked is perfect and we re-shaped the house to fit (which is better than the original).
This is my first home, my first build. Every step was easy, Jennifer put up with my million questions with grace and got back to me straight away.
The build was on time and any issues were sorted out with minimal delay.
I've been in the house for about 5 weeks now and absolutely love it.
Thanks guys !!
HomeStart is amazing
The quality of my home exceeded all my expectations and the service I received by Emily Read at Perth HomeStart was absolutely amazing. The house was completed a couple months before the due date and is perfect. HomeStart made the process of becoming a first home buyer simple and enjoyable. If given the chance, I would build with HomeStart again.
